Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Orlando, FL
Ranked #229 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed 15 August 2011

We were very happy with our stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites on Universal Boulevard.

The hotel is in a decent location in relation to the theme parks and is walking distance from the Wet N Wild waterpark.

The hotel pool is small but we did not have any trouble getting a lounger (free of charge) any day.

The staff here were excellent - very friendly and very helpful. Even when it was obvious they were under pressure, they would still help as much as possible and always manage a smile.

There was continental breakfast each morning, free of charge. This was also very good and a great way to start the day. The hotel does not have any facilities for dinner or evening meals, which is a pity because it is a bit of a walk to find some nice restaurants.

In the lobby, there is a tourist info desk which is excellent for organising your day trips and getting general info about the area (maps etc).

There was a computer in the lobby which guests could use for internet access, also free of charge.

There is a shuttle service to the theme parks, whcih also will bring you back to the hotel in the evening. This is, once again, free of charge.

The room was basic but comfortable. If I was ever to return to Orlando, I would have no problem staying here again.

We stayed here for 1 night only after visiting Universal Studios prior to a family reunion. Our room was room 319 and it had a wonderful view of the top of Wet n' Wild. We could see the blinking lights from the top of the slides and when we went to sleep, we chose to leave the curtain open because the lights were not too bright and they were not making shadows on the wall. It was very quiet and clean.

Our room had 2 queen beds. The room was clean and did not smell. However, the comforters or whatever you call them--the patterned sheet over the bed sheets did have a smell to them as if they were not washed. A message to the hotel: Please have housekeeping wash the patterned sheets as well since they cover the bedsheets that guests sleep on. Other than that, I have no complaints about the room.

The complimentary breakfast was good as well. The eating area which is right near the lobby had a view of the parking lot and we could see our car. Breakfast was warm and filling since we had to drive up to Ocala for the family reunion. Concierge gave us plenty of brochures for stuff to see and do in Orlando which was very useful and gave us even more information on the area. They also gave us Mickey Mouse stickers. The game room is nice and none of the machines were broken. There is a fitness center as well and they also have a pool but I did not have time for a swim.

I hear that this hotel offers 1 bedroom suites so if you are traveling with the family and want a safe, good, but not too expensive hotel then this is the place! The lobby fireplace and stairs to the second floor add a touch of the comfort of home especially in the winter when Orlando gets cold. I will most likely stay here again on my next trip to Universal Studios.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with the whole family, you can get a 1 bedroom suite at very reasonable price o...

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Universal Studios and their 'free' shuttle. Customer Service at the Country Inn overall was great. Both in check-in and when the shuttle bus driver refused to allow our group to get on his bus to go to Universal. We had a large group of teenagers with a few separate families, and it was our intent to catch the shuttle to Universal there and back. When the shuttle pulled up, the driver asked if we were a 'group', which we were (i.e. we all came together); and he told us that because we had more then 10, then none of us could ride the shuttle. (The shuttle is not run by the Country Inn, but by a separate 3rd party contractor.) We were not provided this information upon making our reservations or checking in, and the desk clerk that day, really went to bat for us - - requesting that we be allowed to ride the shuttle to no avail. Two of our families that were not present at the time, did board the shuttle, and at 10:00 p.m., when they went to get back onto the shuttle at Universal - - it was not there. They had to take a taxi back to the hotel. The breakfast was amazing in the quantity and quality provided, definitely a positive for this hotel. On the downside, the halls were strewn with pizza coupons on the carpet, and it looked well...trashy. Hotel rooms were clean and accommodating, and we appreciated the free usage of a safe. All in all a pretty decent experience, minus the shuttle bus issue.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July while visiting Disney World. We read all the reviews of the Hotels in the area and decided on this one. We were not disappointed. The Hotel building itself is newer and updated and the room was excellent - spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast and breakfast area was exceptional. It was a 15 minute drive to the Magic Kingdom and a 10 minute drive to Universal. The Hotel is located just off the major shopping street with lots of restaurants and other stores. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend this Hotel to anyone visiting Disney World.

Great stay. Breakfast is above average, very good. They have a pot of freash oatmeal with all the things you like to add to it. Room was very clean. Front desk very helpful. Good location. Within walking distance of a water park. Universal studios not far, but I wouldn't want to walk there and back after walking the park all day. Many restaurants in the area.

I have stayed here several times while visiting family nearby. I always feel welcomed, safe, and comfortable. Staff is consistently helpful and friendly, especially Joey at the front desk who always goes out of his way with all customers. Breakfast is great and free, wifi is free as well. Location is central yet away from the traffic and congestion that plague Orlando in general. Room upkeep is very good and updates in decor seem to always be occurring. All in all, a great value.
